The proper place to ask would be the xerces-j-user mailing list 

I haven't kept track with it in the last year, so there is a (small) 
chance that the following statements are no longer accurate.  Xerces-J 
had integrated an HTML DOM implementation on top of the Xerces-J XML 
parser.  However, the original effort either predated or ignored XHTML 
and can only be used with a non-standard XML representation of HTML and 
cannot read either XHTML or HTML.  Support for the HTML interfaces 
required using HTML-specific implementation or builder classes 
(org.apache.html.dom.HTMLDOMImplementationImpl or 

In my opinion (at least the last time I checked), there is vanishingly 
small utility to the implementation.
